We are proud to announce the exhibition of new works by Vasilis Avramidis, a contemporary Greek artist born in 1981, in HIRO GALLERY Ginza Tokyo for the first time in this three years.


Avramidis was born in Kilkis, Greece. He graduated from Central Saint Martins, from which many famous artists graduated. He is based in the United Kingdom and Greece and holds exhibitions mainly in Europe and the US. The first Asian area exhibition in HIRO GALLERY 3 years ago was well received.


In almost all of his artworks, classical still-life or landscapes, flourished nature, and human figures fused with these motifs, are painted and realise surrealistic pictorial space. All his works make us feel high quality and the artist's technique, but it is also characteristic of his career that he continues to change and develop his expression.


His newest works are, "in order to address the subject matter purely through form, tone and contrast", depicted in black and white monochrome. Although we can feel the succession of the older works, the artist's new trials can also be seen. For example, "hands" are impressively described in detail, and "spaces" are nested in the painting itself and sometimes grabbed by the hands.


The exhibition title, 'Understory,' is a word for forestry and ecology. It means a layer of vegetation beneath the forest's main canopy but above the forest floor. How nature flourishes inside the forest seems to imply the thoughts and subjects Avramidis pursues.


We exhibited 8 new oil paintings by Avramidis.
